— First review of this album —
4 stars Tuliterä (fireblade or such) plays progressive cosmic heavy rock music, which most possibly will please both fans of space rock and heavy prog, also reaching global audience through instrumental approach, ensuring also presence of convincing musical content not relying to lyrical presence.

"Alpha Blade" opens the first EP with cosmic soundscapes leading quickly to powerful overture, built from heavy riff colored with space textures similar to modern Hawkwind recordings. Fine solo guitar adds the musical and feeling content, and pushes the scenario to second theme, lingering with bass rhythm forcing oriental melody lines. Maybe a heavier version of Hidria Spacefolk could be one association from these sounds. After short second for taking breathe, voyage continues diving to a long tunnel of symmetrical oscillations of solo and rhythmic elements, creating a neat vortex to a hyperspace wormhole. Fast and precise guitar licks tie these elements to a heavy metal context, and epic voyaging in these exiting themes makes this as optimal music for over speeding in nocturnal highways (thus is not recommended for listening in a car). "Jagat" lingers between this dynamic opener and following longer track, being a heavy rock riffer with fine drums and trance-oriented synths weaving a pleasant cosmic aural web. Later a long melodic hard rock guitar solo emerges to bring more shapes to this spacey scenery.

"All-Seeing Delirium" runs over fourteen minutes, and is the highlight of this album for me. Neatly arranged rhythm space introduces grandiose cosmic scenes, guitar riffs creating feeling of movement, whilst long solemn synthesizer notes paint visions of huge nebular pillars, creating convincing feeling of large cosmic space. Melodically the composition is in my opinion really great, and there are carefully crafted delicate space rock electronic pulsing enriching the overall sound. First more dynamic phase leads to an open and calm moment with late 1970's Tangerine Dream sounding sequencer sound walls. A long hypnotic phase with leading riff drives elevates from this phase, long synthesizer melodies quietly creeping back to the arena. Downshifted electronics continue as the riff-rolling stops, opening an ethereal space with beautifully weeping guitars, fine dramatics and a union of faster and slower rhythmic elements. All this is enhanced by shifting the contrasts to the drum approach, leading the song to find its coda from dramatic singular note, left ringing to soothing calm space and tender guitar tones soothing after the vivid cosmic roller coaster ride. Final return to heavier repetition of falling theme mingles with the long composition's main theme, ending to dynamic cuts.

So, a wonderful short album or long EP, how one wishes to look at it, and luckily there is more to follow.

— First review of this album —
4 stars "Clarity" EP delivers more cosmic heavy prog, continuing the fine quality of the first "Alpha" release. "Monad" surges to existence with neat rhythmic solutions, leading dynamically to a positive melody theme, projected upon vast cosmic canvas pulsing with spaced-out synthesizer sounds. Heavier and less stoned Hawkwind-oriented riff and melody harmonies relate to heavy prog's musical language, especially on the solo guitar, which releases shining deepening positive feelings to the musical experience. A more cosmic version of Time Traveller's sound could be one source of referring also. Minimal compositional elements have been enriched with both wide sonic background components and pleasant rhythmic arrangements, providing enough musical information leaving vocals obsolete, and allowing pleasant cosmic trance experience to emerge. "New Clarity" starts with dense electronic sequencer layers, from which more mystical riff running appears, and thicker fog of sonar nebula keeps smearing the song. A solemn melody solo is included, maybe crystallizing the good elements of Dream Theater, united with 1990's Hawkwind tones, and all this processed with good taste, personality and fine musicianship. After a point of turn in voyaging, the song changes diving to a descending theme, and in the end returning to opening riff.

"Voidborn" is my favorite tune of this group so far, starting with whale wails, Rush styled rhythms and grandiose synth landscapes. Composition twists furiously in radiant corners of cosmos, and later conceals a wide cosmic ambience sequence. Here are found some really fine delicate space sound constructions, sequencer pulsing and beautiful solo guitar, releasing calm rhythm progression. This long focusing to themes brings a presence of astral vastness, also building fine tensions for massive culminations in conclusive compositional solutions. The album ends to quite different track than the others, "Tunguska, Siberia", perhaps speculating the hundred year past events in a horror soundtrack styles. Synths open the tune, lingering acoustic guitars shifting in calm chord run and keyboard dominated minor melody phases.

This act caught my attention on the local concert stages, where they are luckily often seen. A very recommendable group for listening if you like cosmic music, and do not mind heavier riffs or solos in the soup. The vocal problems sometimes related with heavy music are not present on this instrumental awesomeness, and hopefully these two EP's are signals of forthcoming long player record.
